Contractor Plant and Machinery Insurance

Features & Benefits

  • Requirements

    The construction business, responsible for constructing buildings, roads, factories and bridges, is what drives an economy forward. Those in this business make use of heavy machinery and equipment to undertake a multitude of construction jobs. If anything was to happen to this equipment and machinery, the work would suffer, causing inconvenience all around. The Contractor’s Plant and Machinery Insurance provides cover for such associated exigencies.

  • Benefits

    The Contractor’s Plant and Machinery Policy covers all your primarily movable plant equipment and machinery against damage or loss in case of an accident. Machines such as bulldozers, cranes, and excavators etc. come under the policy and are offered repair or replacement in case of damage, so one can resume work as soon as possible.

  • Sum Insured

    The sum insured under the policy shall be equal to the replacement cost of each item damaged, considering the replacement is done by a new item of the same kind, size and capacity. It should also include the freight costs, cost of erection, customs duty and any other charges involved.

  • Premium

    The premium to be paid for the policy may differ in each case, depending on several factors such as the type of equipment, location(s), risk involved and the use of equipment.


Anyone who owns movable construction machinery or is a contractor, bank or financial institution with interest in such machinery, can make use of this policy.
